What do we do

We provide alternative education for out-of-school children and adolescents by providing the training required for subsequent insertion into the regular school system. Our Alternative Schools prepare the students to achieve sixth grade performance then we seek to zonify them in a high school in Petare to give continuity to their secondary education.

College students: College students can support OSCASI by designing and implementing projects for the benefit of students, teachers and promoters who work at the Alternative Schools of our organization.

Adults: We have school support programs involving adult volunteers willing to share their knowledge and skills with teachers and students. Such is the case of the Reading Program and Math Booster Program led by parents and alumni of Colegio San Ignacio.
